Fridays I check Rotten Tomatoes. Bumble Bee is good, apparently. Child me would say 'duh.' Adult me is pretty surprised, but happy he's a Bug again.

Pretty much anything that was remotely close to winning an award in 2005 was better than Crash. My dirty, sweaty nuts are better than Crash.

And yes, ET was light years better than Gandhi. So was The Verdict, Sophie's Choice, Diner, and Blade Runner. I don't mean to run down Gandhi- it was a perfectly decent film- but I'd take those others over it.

Finally saw The Verdict. Down the rabbit hole from the Michael Clayton recs. Really good, sort of old school legal drama.

Speaking of Michael Clayton, none of you answered my question

I always figured he stopped to look at the horses because he was having a breakdown and questioning his entire life and the horses represent a simpler beauty and freedom.

I enjoyed the family outrage when snuck in a viewing of the 1st Buster Scruggs vignette.
